Current and Past Obesity in Japanese Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia Undergoing Revascularization.

CONCLUSION: The prevalence of current obesity was as low as 18% (15% to 22%) in Japanese CLI patients undergoing revascularization, whereas about a half were formerly obese. Maximum BMI was not independently associated with the mortality risk in the population. PMID: 32188794 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Evidence indicates that each DOAC may have differences in outcomes when used in patients with a high BW/BMI. Currently, low-quality data are available that support avoiding dabigatran and considering apixaban or rivaroxaban; lack of sufficient data preclude a recommendation for edoxaban use in this patient population.

AbstractThe metabolic syndrome is a complex disorder of various metabolic risk factors in a single individual having central obesity and commonly associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The aim of our study was to study the relationship between coagulation abnormalities and metabolic syndrome. We performed a prospective cross-sectional study in a tertiary care hospital. A total of fifty cases of metabolic syndrome and fifty age&sex matched controls were selected. These two groups were investigated for Prothrombin Time (PT), Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT), Fibrinogen levels, Plasminogen Activ...

CONCLUSION: Compared with the original FRONTLINE survey, FRONTLINE 2 reveals some differences in the management of VTE in patients with cancer. Newer anticoagulants such as fondaparinux, dabigatran, and rivaroxaban are being incorporated into the contemporary management of VTE in patients with cancer. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: This globally conducted survey of more than 5,000 cancer clinicians revealed a number of insights into the perceived risk for venous thromboembolism as well as contemporary approaches to its prevention and treatment. Although guidelines have consistently recommended anticoagulant medications fo...

Acute responses of platelet count and ADP-induced platelet aggregation to different high intensity interval exercise modes. Clin Hemorheol Microcirc. 2020 May 04;: Authors: Ahmadizad S, Rahmani H, Khosravi N, Falakdin Z, Connes P, Daraei A Abstract BACKGROUND: Platelet activation is associated with abdominal obesity and exercise training is an important modulator of body weight. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the effects of two high intensity interval exercise (HIIE) protocols of different intensity and duration on platelet indices and platelet aggregation in overweight men. METHODS: T...

Conclusion: Pregnancy was the most common provoking factor for VTE in our study. Pregnant women should undergo formal, written assessments of risk factors for VTE at the first visit and delivery. Larger studies with a randomized design, and control groups are required to confirm the current findings. PMID: 32351991 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to evaluate the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), prophylactic use of enoxaparin and clinical outcomes in patients undergoing primary and revisional LAGB procedures. A retrospective study evaluated the prophylactic use of enoxaparin in adult patients who underwent primary and revisional (band and port) LAGB procedures. The incidence of VTE and major bleeding was investigated during a 90-day follow-up period. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis. We included 112 and 100 patients who had undergone primary and revisional (24 band procedures and 76 port procedures) LAGB surg...

(University of Gothenburg) Men with a history of obesity in their late teens are, in adult life, more at risk of a blood clot (thrombus) in a leg or lung, according to a study from the University of Gothenburg study shows. The risk rises successively and is highest in those who were severely obese in adolescence.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. The risk of VTE is particularly elevated during the postpartum period and especially following cesarean delivery. There is considerable variation in the approach to VTE prophylaxis in pregnancy, including following cesarean delivery. The purpose of this document is to discuss the different guidelines on VTE prophylaxis following cesarean delivery and provide recommendations based on the available evidence. The following are Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) recommendations: We recommend that all women who undergo cesarean delivery r...
